Hey Everybody,

  Happy Halloween!!!!! This week it was a little hard to decide what to do. It’s Halloween, so I wanted to do something along that theme. I also wanted to let everyone know that, not only is the first chapter of “The Ravens’ Gambit” ( The creator owned project I’m doing with fellow cartoonist Susan Tardif ) completed, BUT, it is also up on the web. Thats right, the entire first chapter is up and available to be read on its own brand spankin’ new website  www.Ravensgambit.com . In the end I decided to mix the two themes together and dress the main characters of Ravens’ in some fun Halloween attire . 

(Check out the website and get the lowdown on all the characters in their normal habitat.)

  Enjoy your candy everybody!

Hey Everybody,

  This week I decided what to draw after rolling a bunch of percentage dice and consulting a couple of hastily constructed tables of possibilities. I ended up with Kraven the hunter, a character I have to confess I never really followed deeply. I did have a bit of fun drawing that Tiger though. Hope you all enjoy it and have a good weekend.

Till next week,

-Rich

That Girl is POISON!!! Oh man, I can’t believe I made that joke. Ok, so I managed to go a whole 2 posts without drawing a pretty lady. I hope you all aren’t too disappointed. I was going for something a little more cheesecake with this one. I’m not sure I quite got there. I still enjoyed it though. I hope you do as well. 

Till Next Week,

Hey everybody,

  this week I decided to do a illustration of the Player Characters from the small 4E D&D game I’m running in my “spare” time. You see here a Dragonborn Fighter, a Tiefling Rogue, and a Half-elf Warlord. This is my very first campaign in the role as DM and also my first experiences with the 4th Edition of D&D. I have to say I really enjoy some of the new systems and themes of the game and I would highly recommend 4th Edition for DM’s in particular. In any case I hope you all enjoy the illustration.

SNIKT! SNIKT! I realized I’ve been drawing a lot of Ladies for this blog lately So this week I decided I’d try and switch it up. So, not only did I draw the good ol’ Canuckle head himself, BUT I also fully intended this one to be in B/W.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hey Everybody,

 I’m just getting back on track after finishing the first Issue of Raven’s Gambit, which now has its own Website (www.ravensgambit.com). I’m also deeply entrenched in the coloring process of my second “Twilight Zone” Graphic Novel.  I did this Wonder Woman illustration for a Local Fundraiser for Domestic Violence Shelters and hotlines run by Andy Mangels. The original illustration is in B/W but I thought it would be nice to Color it and display it here since I was pretty happy with how it came out. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Lucky #13 is going to be my final post to be caught up and Lucky me its a pretty one.

  Everybody this is Dorahven. She is the resident student of the Arcane mysteries among the group. She tends to be more interested in finding out why certain types of Magic work than how much gold she can stuff into her bag. She gets along with the group for 3 reasons. 1 She just generally likes the rest of the group.(boring…) 2 The general premise that, Magical things are both expensive and dangerous and you don’t want them being dangerous to you before you can sell them. It never hurts to have some magical protection around for those times when you want more problem solving options than the use of either sharp pointy things or hard bashy things. 

Oh I almost forgot Alexander…. ain’t he cute!!!

Thomas!!!

  Thomas is obviously the weakest member of the group.  His frailty is surpassed only by his brutal and truely evil nature. But seriously Thomas is a very strong, intelligent, and caring member of the team. He also functions as the guy who scares the piddle out of people in dark alleys if the job calls for that. He and Jasper go back a very long way and it is a true testament to Thomas’ protective nature that they are both still alive.

   He is and will always be a simple farm boy at heart even if he is off on the other side of the world smashing monsters heads in and calling that an honest days work.

Wow the Drawings just keep coming…

  Everybody this is Jasper [Little Evil] Thistlefoot. If that was your name wouldn’t you try and come up with your own nickname too? In any case Jasper is the type of guy that couldn’t stay away from trouble if he wanted too. He’s always got an opinion and can always see a way in the plan to make a little bit more money. He’s a very talkative guy with sometimes very silly things to say,but if you need a lock picked or a vault opened he’s your guy. He’s also been best friends with Thomas (whom you will meet next) since either of them can remember. Oh yes, and he stands all of about 3 and a half ft tall.
